Yeah, that's how it was for me too. I ended up taking it to a guy with a pit. Only cost me $35

Alignment=yes. You reminded me that I need to install my camber kit too lol. Sucks about not being able to get an alignment done. I have no finger gap and got mine done without a prob at Firestone. At the dealer right now getting my TPMS installed in my rims and having the weather stripping replaced etc.

Sooooold

Not everyone may need it, but I have this Skunk2 arm on my car and I love it. Don't bother with the ball joints in the front, they'll just give you trouble. Do it right the first time and thank Skunk2 for releasing this part for our cars.

I think front camber kits are for people who are trying to "tune" or adjust their camber to a certain degree. Or for people who are just paranoid about that kinda stuff...

Just had an alignment done today. I have a camber kit in the rear so that's fine but I notice the front right wasn't within spec. Front left is at -0.8 and the right is at -1.2. Wondering if I should get a front camber kit now...

That's pretty funny, mine has the same specs. Don't worry about it, with camber .4 off it will not cause any damage, pull or bad anything. You can easily daily with almost -2 and not see any more wear than normal, unless your toe is off.

.8 and 1.2 are not far off, I wouldn'r worry too much about it. If you did want a kit though you would want a Skunk2 kit. These allow the greatest clearance to the shock tower and are easier to adjust!

Check ur local laws. In Ontario if your camber is out visibly, it's enough for police to take ur plates off and deem your car unsafe.
